Lost A Pet?

We understand that no one likes losing a pet, especially when your special fur baby has become such an important member of your family. Since we love our pets too, we work hard to help them find their way back home. If you've lost a pet, please click on the links below to see the animals recently brought to our shelter or to fill out a form and share information about your lost pet. If you choose to fill out a form, remember that a picture is worth a thousand words! Including a photo will significantly increase the chances of others identifying your lost pet and reuniting your family.

Once you complete the form, we'll add that information to our webpage for 30 days, or until you tell us they've been found and returned home, safe and sound.

Found An Animal?

Per county ordinance: It is unlawful for any person to harbor or keep within this jurisdiction any lost or stray animal. Whenever any animal shall be found which appears to be lost or strayed, it shall be the duty of the finder to notify Davis County Animal Services within (72) hours. The Animal Services Director may take the Animal into protective custody.

If you've found an animal, you have several options.

If it does, call us and we'll contact the owner to reunite their family. Next, you can click the link to fill out a Found Animal Form to let the public know you've found an animal that wants to go home. Once completed, the information will be uploaded to our website for those looking for their lost pet to see. If possible, please include a photo as this significantly increases the chances of identifying a beloved pet. Finally, you can register as a Finder to Foster family and keep the pet safe in your home while we try to find the owner. More details will soon be available right here regarding this wonderful program, but for now, please call (801) 444-2200 for more information. 



As part of our passionate commitment to keeping pets and families together, Animal Care of Davis County "microchips" every single dog, cat, and rabbit that gets adopted from our facility. About the size of a grain of rice, a microchip, which uses passive radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology for quick and easy identification, is implanted under the skin of an animal, typically on the back of the neck. When a lost pet is found and brought to a facility, all animal control agencies and most vets will first scan the animal to see if a microchip is present. If it is, and the information is correct and current, the staff can call the owner and reunite them with their pet. This harmless technology has been used successfully for decades to reunite millions of pets with their families all around the world.
